Title: Sono chi no sadame | Artist: Hiroaki “Tommy” Tominaga | Show: Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure
Description: The First opening to the ongoing adaption of the Jojo’s bizarre adventure manga.
Why You Picked It: Jojo’s bizarre adventures is one of the craziest and manliest shounen series to ever strike a pose on screen. I started watching anime on a weekly basis in October 2012 and This was one of the many shows I picked up in that season and a from episode 2 onward this is the opening for the first arc: Phantom blood.
This Opening has practically everything I like in an opening theme song. Orchestral elements? Check. Heavy guitars and a rocking beat? Check. Catchy vocals? Double Check.
Even though the arcs following Phantom blood are much better the first opening is one of my favourites from the series. As it has continues to air Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure has managed to seize it’s spot as my all time favourite anime so hopefully this will not be the last OP/ED I get to post from this show (depending on whether anybody else snatches them for their picks).
Finally I’ll leave you with a video with Tommy and his band Bluff performing the song live.
JOJO! JOJO! ...JOJO!
